Developing a clear psychological explanation for what is going on for the client means that we will likely need to talk about client personal experiences and circumstances. The content of sessions is confidential. There are exceptions to confidentiality, the clinician may share information:
… if the client inform the clinician, or gives reason for them to think, that the client or another named person, is at risk of harm, then the clinician may pass this information to a relevant person or organisation (e.g. client ICE or GP).
… if the client disclose knowledge of criminal activity or information that relates to a statutory obligation, for example, safeguarding of children or terrorism.
… if instructed by a court.
